I got a text from my wife who was out at a meeting this morning. Says she has some carpentry work for me, a rustic dining room table. Now I know full well, this is not for us. We don’t even have a dining room! So that means this is to be paid work! I only hope the customer isn’t too picky on details and such.
Those of you who have read my profile know that tables are about as big as I go for projects. I have a small shop and usually do big stuff outside. It’s October now. This might turn out a minor hassle being restricted to indoors, but maybe it will be okay. Presuming this happens I’ll do a progress series.
Good news is that I do know a bit about building tables. I’ve done two in my life, one so-so and one rather good, (not counting two picnic tables.)
[EDIT] I decided not to take this on. A 12 foot long table is too big for my small workspace. I think even Norm Abram would have trouble with it in his barn.
